Mahama’s Statement On Mortuaries For Zongos Has Been Distorted, Ignore False Claims – NDC Campaign Team

Published

on


The Campaign Team of the Opposition National Democratic Congress for the 2020 Elections has clarified it’s position on claims making round that the Party intends to construct Mortuaries in Zongo Communities when given the nod in December.

In a statement, the campaign team of John Mahama described the publications as false, misleading and a deliberate attempt to whip-up anti-Muslim sentiments against the NDC and the JOHN MAHAMA 2020 Campaign.

Below is the full statement by the campaign team of Mr Mahama

2020 ELECTIONS: MAHAMA PROMISES MORE MORTUARIES FOR ZONGO COMMUNITIES

The attention of the JOHN MAHAMA 2020 Campaign has been drawn to a false, misleading and inaccurate claims in publications carried by sections of the online media titiled “2020 elections: Mahama promises more mortuaries for Zongo communities”.

For the records, the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, during a live interview with TV XYZ and Woezor TV, took the opportunity to highlight his party’s proposed interventions in the People’s Manifesto for Zongos and Deprived Urban Settlements.

Reading from page 82 of the NDC’s 2020 manifesto, Mr Mahama mentioned a number of interventions aimed at addressing “the historical inequalities between Zongo, Deprived Urban Settlements and other communities, including the negative effects of the Alien Compliance Order implemented by the Danquah-Busia tradition on Zongos”.

Acknowledging the concerns of Muslims about how traditional mortuaries handle their beloved ones when they pass on, Mr Mahama quoted the specific section of the People’s Manifesto which addresses the issue and aims at lessening the burden of bereaved Muslims by treating their deceased loved ones in line with accepted practices of the Islamic faith.

“So a lot of the Muslim communities have not been happy. And so we say ‘we will facilitate the establishment of mortuaries in accordance with Islamic custom and practices and collaborate with the Ministry of Health to set up focal teams responsible for procedures that are compliant with Islamic custom and practice at all public mortuaries’ ”, he quoted.

For the avoidance of doubt, the said publication is mischievous, deliberately distorted and calculated to whip-up anti-Muslim sentiments against the NDC and the JOHN MAHAMA 2020 Campaign.

Muslims,in particular, and the general public are therefore entreated to disregard that offensive publication by treating it with the contempt it deserves.

NDC’s Manifesto Has ‘Aroused The Sleepy Conscience’ of Akufo-Addo – Mahama

Published

on


National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama has expressed delight that the party’s People’s Manifesto has already been put to work by the Akufo-Addo led government.

Addressing some professionals in Ghana on the NDC Peoples’ Manifesto, the former President noted that the ruling government have now been up and running doing the right things because they are tormented by the manifesto.

He however noted that it is a bit too late because they’ll grasp power from them anyway.

“I am overjoyed that even before the first vote is cast, the promises in the Peoples’ Manifesto have significantly aroused the sleepy conscience and attention of this Government and have shaken them to act selectively albeit too late in the day on some of our policy proposals,” he said.
